Shot entirely on a 100 year old wooden hand-cranked 35mm camera, LONDONERS documents modern day London as you have never seen before. It shows the city as a community: a snapshot of contemporary history about what it is like to live in London today.
I really wanted it to be about a community’s relationship with the camera.
